you’ve got mail

i get excited.
someone is contacting me.

who can it be
a family member with an update on great uncle charlie

a friend with a clever movie or joke
these things fly around cyberspace with the speed of light

my sister with news about her cat
it’s ok, i tell her about my dog

a lodge brother responding to my question
(which he almost never does)
i'll continue to wait and hope

someone who wants to go out to lunch
or just another routine reminder from an automated alert

nope, not today
just another coupon

well at least i will eat well
and cheaply
